I don't know what is doing the Elan 210 on your dreams but I don't think it would be of much use to you
In fact it is pretty easy: If you want a boat to solo sail and an oceanic racer, as well as a good cruiser, that's easy, it is the Django 7.70 on its racing version (the interior is the same):

The Seascape 27 is a fast and fun boat to sail but it is a coastal boat. sure you will have fun racing it but not good results in compensated neither it will be a good boat for crewed race. Now, there is another option, I posted about it but you seemed distracted.
This one can be a good option regarding speed, short crew racing, crewed racing and it has also offshore potential. Two of them are going to make the next Transquadra.
Look at these prices:
